Throughout our Nation’s history, Americans of Asian and Pacific Islander descent have made significant contributions to every aspect of our society, from business and politics to literature and the arts. Their accomplishments have enriched our Nation and stand as a testament to the power of the American Dream. During Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, we celebrate the indelible mark these individuals have left on our culture and pay tribute to the myriad ways in which they continue to strengthen our Nation.

Special thanks to our Military Spouses for your encouragement and support. Our Warrior-Citizens are better for it.

Military Spouse Appreciation Day

Since 1984, Military Spouses have been celebrated the Friday in May before Mother's Day, this day was first recognized by President Ronald Reagan. Normally, the sitting president issues a proclamation in recognition of the holiday, while celebrations are held on and near U.S. military bases around the world.

So let's give an extra thank you to all the military spouses out there, they support us thru the good, the bad, and the ugly and they stand strong to hold down the fort while we mobilize state side or deploy over seas. Let's thank them for all the sacrifices that they do and for standing beside us during the hard times while deployed, the good complicated times, and let's not forget to let them know that with them by our side we are stronger.

On behalf of the 63rd Readiness Division family, Have an amazing Military Spouses Day.
